Kris, great read. I agree with you, no amount of books will do the work.
How many of us live like what you say, “We first find ourselves feeling “walked on” and then pick a fight over stupid shit to get even”.
It takes courage and honesty to recognize why we have the emotions we do. When you are really willing to see how you run your life, you get amazing clarity. The fog lifts.
The cool thing about this is life takes on a deeper meaning. There is freedom.
You no longer live like a dog chasing it’s tail thinking it’s found something new. The new is there and alive everyday. Instead of the story you’ve ran in your head your whole life that you keep trying to get out of.
